Hanuman Langur by Karun Verma
An infant Hanuman langur Semnopithecus entellus is helpless and totally dependent on its mother for food, protection and rest. Langurs are folivores (leaf-eaters) and must move constantly through the day in search of fresh leaves. Infants, born black to differentiate them from adults, make the most of their mothers’ rare rest-periods to catch-up on much-needed sleep.
